OK... a new page started. The above image is a hint for the image on page 49.
I like that. wait, I took that. probably shouldn't answer.
moak's post is
scarpa's kiosk at giardini, venice.
i'll post a new one asap.
p2an's got it
(seierplusseier - pardon my poaching - you have some great images)
I was just looking at Snohetta in a Taschen book, so I finally, finally recognized something on this thread. It's the Lillehammer Olympic Art Museum, completed for the 1994 Olympics. I see from a google search that the photos are better on Cristoph Kapeller's website.
I only vaguely remember this from the Olympics....
also, there's no intermediate supports for that facade wall; it extends 18.5 m at it's furthest point on a system of spring loaded tension cables that are regulated by a computer to account for expansion/contraction. Pretty intense.
Who's turn is it?!? I wanna play!
Whose turn is it?!? I wanna play!
It's THuh's turn - post something.
nobody is posting. only saw this recently:
the stairwell on the side is not original.
in an effort to keep this thread moving, I have been somewhat dishonest in gathering information on the latest clue:
Torre Insignia by Mario Peni Darqui - that picture is really misleading as to how triangulated that building really is...
again, in an effort to keep this thread moving, here is something i am sure a few archinectors will recognize:
A resurrection in celebration of 3.0
Agreed! Hopefully it can be the second life of this thread. That's Gray Organschi's Jesuit community center @ Fairfield.The next:
...and simples' building from a couple of months ago is Allied Works' University of Michigan Museum of Art.
oooh allied works! it's "designed to LEED gold!" whatever that means...
i just saw that house in a magazine, but I can remember which one...
Holz....ha!207 - it's in the one with all the portraits on the cover.
Harry Weese - Shadowcliff
I don't know, but I like it.
I somewhat recently came across that archive of affinities site SDR, one of my favorite blogs to check daily. Such a good collection of obscure oddities and lesser known architectural projects.and 207, that's Breuer's St. Johns Abbey, strangely difficult to recognize without seeing the bell tower. The next, a similar form:
very cool project... just wasted 30 mins google image searching every variation of the combination of gym, exhibition center, folded, bent, concrete, and roof you could imagine... and i got nada... ugh...
It's an impressive structure, a couple more images of it:Located in northern switzerland. Architect has been fairly prolific over the last 50 years. Here's some more of his work:
I know who it is, but I'd have to pick another project and I'm not feeling inspired.
oh well...studio vacchini, sportcenter in Mulimattphuyake - you can do another...
bah i KNEW it was a gym... damn you google image search.... let me down....
toast has got it. no time to post one now either, you want to take it letdown?
ok sure let me search the ole' image library real quick...
ok, there we go
another one to help it along...
definitely looks Japanese, but not sure if I've seen it before... doesn't look like any of the sanaa projects.
it is indeed japanese, ill post a couple more images...
its in tachikawa city, tokyo
so, do the japanese ever go, "perfect site cast concrete, what a cliché"?
took a little googling. Chiba Manabu architects' Stitch housing. I'm swamped right now, someone else want to post the next?
phuyake got it, whoever wants to post one, do it!
well, since no one posted, and for the sake of keeping this thread alive, here's a softball
looks like the roof structure in ando's pavilion
I know this one, it's kengo kuma, fashionable japanese architect :)
and now I know what to post, hang in there...
btw, it is a museum in japan and it is shaped like a wooden bridge because, if I understood this correctly, it is a museum of wooden bridges...
i am so bad at posting images, i shouldn't be allowed on the internet
I have no idea what I am doing wrong, so if this second attempt doesn't work, just go to the address and see for yourself
